When You Can’t Trust Your Intuition – Blossom Tip 26   Recently updated !

Yesterday I was walking with my teenage friend, who is 17 years old. We’ve known each other for six years; she takes care of our dogs when we travel.

When You’re Facing Setbacks in Life — Blossom Tip 25

Do You Truly Know How to Overcome Setbacks? — Blossom Tip 25

So, Blossy and I wanted to tell you The Parable of the Lumberjack — it’s about facing setbacks in life, which is this week’s theme for “She Blossoms.” Then I asked my She Blossoms Facebook Group members how they cope with setbacks. Their responses are better than an old parable (oops, sorry Jesus, no offense! What’s that you say? The […]

When You Need Strength — Blossom Tip 24

A reader asked a great question after receiving last week’s newsletter,  When You Feel Scared — Blossom Tip 23. “Laurie, you said to put on your white clothes especially when you’re scared.

When You Feel Scared — Blossom Tip 23

What is the biggest fear you face today? I was thinking about Blossoming despite fear yesterday, while jogging through my dark neighborhood at 5:30 am. Though dawn was nowhere in sight, I chose to cut through Myrtle Park. A dark park, with a few path lights here and there…and me, wearing a white jacket, light beige running pants, and a […]

When You Feel Sorry for Yourself — Blossom Tip 22

“If you show up every day, you’re a hero!” says Blossy. “It takes guts just to show up and do what you’re called to do. Keep moving forward, sharing what you’ve been given and saying what’s on your heart – without judging or criticizing yourself.”     Sometimes, though, it’s easy to start feeling sorry for yourself.

How to Make Tomorrow Better – Blossom Tip 20

This week, Blossy and I are thinking about things that will benefit us tomorrow, or next week, or even next year. “Do something today that your future self will thank you for,” says Blossy — and I agree 🙂     We don’t know what tomorrow holds.

Weaving Through the Darkness – Blossom Tip 19

Today, Blossy and I are sharing tips that are rather disconnected. She wanted to encourage you to pause, take a deep breath, and make sure you’re going in the right direction. I wanted to talk about The Weaver. So, we decided to compromise! And do both 🙂       “Every day brings you one step closer,” says Blossy, “but […]

The Desires of Your Heart – Blossom Tip 18

“Let go of what is no longer yours,” says Blossy, “so you can pick up what God is giving you…”     “Look, I am doing a new thing!” says God in Isaiah 43:19. “Do you not perceive it?” That’s one of my favorite sentences in the Bible — and in my life. The desires of your heart What, my […]
